Publisher's Summary

Carson Cunningham was a top college basketball player for Oregon State and Purdue and a native of Hoosierland Indiana who believed he could one day play in the NBA, but instead wound up in the minor leagues of professional basketball- the storied and now defunct CBA. It’s a league that has turned out a record-setting number of NBA players and coaches, such as Phil Jackson and George Karl, but it wasn’t glamorous. Near-empty arenas, interminable bus rides to nowheresville, oddball coaches, little loyalty from management, and meager pay were a few realities of CBA life. Yet, it drew players in with the allure of action and the prospect of an NBA call-up.Carson writes honestly and hilariously of his running and gunning days in the CBA, with flashbacks to his college days where the future seemed brighter than a new pair of Nikes. A top recruit with superior ballhanding and shooting skills along with a sixth basketball sense, in 1997 Carson was a Sporting News All-American freshman who broke Gary Payton's freshman scoring record and a few years later helped his team at Purdue get within a game of the Final Four.

What the Critics Say

"The hoops answer to Ball Four. By turns funny and poignant - and always self aware - this book allows fans into the locker room and huddle, yes, but also into the cortex of a professional basketball player. If Carson Cunningham could have jumped, run and created his shot off the dribble as masterfully as he writes and observes, he'd be starring in the NBA." (L. Jon Wertheim, senior writer for Sports Illustrated)
